There are many old street in Taiwan, but this is one of the more unique one as the buildings itself are really of historical values, old and it even houses a taoist temple right at the beginning of it. Its a great place for photographers....More

There are few well preserved old houses left in Taiwan. It was a delight to visit Sanxia's Old Street and see the old styles and traditional decors preserved. The old inscriptions of the original residents and their trade can still be found on some of...More

Pleasant walk along the brick-covered buildings facade... rather commercialized, good for window shopping. Short street only, finished in a jiffy.

If you happen to be around the area, it's nice to take a walk through the streets. The buildings were well preserved. Lots of variety of items on sale. Traditional foods made the traditional way; toys played by children in the old days; tea sets....More

Had a nice, quick stroll on this place. Was here for only about an hour, enough to complete the old street, strolling through the food stalls area and crossed the bridge. If you're a photographer and looking for best view and scenery, come only when...More

It's a well maintained old street that isn't too crowded on weekdays. It's quite accessible even though I waited at the wrong bus stop from Yingge station. The horn bread is a must try! Give the tiny prepackaged horns a miss though, oily and dry...More

Sanxia Old Street surprised my wife and me. It is less famous than Tamsui Old Street or Pingxi Old Street, but it is definitely more photogenic, probably only second to Jiufen Old Street, in my opinion. The nearby Qingshui Zushi Temple 清水祖師廟 rivals Longshan Temple,...More
